Nigrum Cropped Cardigan is a feminine and cropped cardigan with raglan, a beautiful frontband and a wide ribbed hem, which is supposed to be placed in the waistline. The cardigan is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both the body and sleeves while knitting. The cardigan is supposed to be worn with approx. 0-10 cm positive ease.

The cardigan is knit in Stockinette stitch knitting back and forth on needle size 4.5 mm/ 4 mm (80 cm). the ribbed hems are knit on circular needle size 3.5 mm/3 mm (80 cm). I recommend double pointed needles in the beginning of the project, when you knit the neckband (the first part of the frontbands).
